Chapter 4: The tools for Goods Works
Reflection:
1.) Choose 3 of the Tools of Good Works which you believe you are consistently applying to your life. Give examples of how you do these Good works.

Renounce yourself in order to follow Christ.

This was written in the book of Matthew 16:24 “Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.”And also it say this in the book of Luke 9:23.It is true, denying to our self means that do not followed your wants to bring only happiness to you sometimes there are things that will makes you happy but it was not God’s will just like when you eat what we called “ampalaya” it was bitter but it is good in our health and also called “Siling Labuyo” it was so spicy but you know it is good in our blood vessels it strengthen it. What I mean is when people doing things that makes them happy but it is prohibited by God’s will, like when a man that has wife who took for another women it is enjoyable for them that they have another girl that is balmy because he tired of his wife scented that is not good so he find another women but it was contrast the word of God, it says at Exodo 20:17 and Deuteronomio 5:21 “Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour’s wife……”.

Follow Christ commandment, not now the commandment of Moses, this law of Moses was given for Israelite, it says at the book of Malachi 4:4 “Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, whichI commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statues and judgments”, this God’s commandment to him in the Mount of Sinai and was called by God the “Law of Moses”, just like the commandments given by God to Jesus Christ for Christians which was called as “Law of Christ” at Galatians 6:2 “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ”, the law of Christ came from God just like the law of Moses in the book of John 12:49-50 “ For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak” 50 “ And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak”, what is this “Law of Moses” given to him by God on the mountain, that has with it statutes and judgment?(Exodus 31:18)“And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.”These are the Ten Commandments written on two tables of stones with the finger of God.(Deuteronomy 4:13)“And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.” It is also called “The Covenant”, which, later, was declared the “Old Covenant”(Hebrews 8:13)“In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.” So we must not focus in the law of Moses because Moses law was incomplete in our time it say at the book of Hebrew 8:7 “For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second” and It was the law that was changed when the priesthood was changed.(Hebrews 7:12)“For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.”Jesus Christ succeeded Moses and his priesthood.(Hebrews 3:1-4)“Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, in as much as he who hath builded the house hath more honor than the house.”so we must followed the Christ law which is excellent and broad. If we followed Moses law in the Christian dispensation, the Law of Moses can not sanctify anymore , it says at...
